John F. Kennedy's WWII medals

By: Patrap, 10:00 PM GMT on November 22, 2013






So, let us not be blind to our differences - but let us also direct attention to our common interests and to the means by which those differences can be resolved.

John F. Kennedy



Framed together are the Navy Marine Corps Medal and the Purple HeartThe Navy Marine Corps Medal (on left) is an octagonal shaped medal depicting an eagle perched on a fouled anchor, beneath which is a globe and raised inscription "HEROISM", suspended from a blue, gold and scarlet ribbon.The Purple Heart (on right) is a heart shaped decoration depicting the profile of George Washington set in purple enamel surrounded by a gold border, suspended from a purple silk ribbon with white borders. At the top of the heart is the Washington Coat of Arms consisting of a white shield with two horizontal red bars below three red stars, set between sprays of green leaves. The reverse shows a raised bronze heart and "FOR MILITARY MERIT".
The medals were presented to Lt. Kennedy in June 1944 for his heroics and injuries sustained in the rescue of the crew of PT 109 during WWII on August 2, 1943 when the motor torpedo boat was struck by a Japanese destroyer.Copyright: The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

With silent prose,
words cannot gather
A Slain President
Lives forever.

The Flame endures, the mission continues, the Dream stays alive.

Rest

Hawaiian Pirate from 1792.
Ran out of cookies, my diamonds, and jewels, oh no.
Searching for something I've already found once before.
If you walk the plank, yeah you, you're bound to drown once more, now.
Drown once more,
You give it to me,
and I'ma swim hard.
Can you do it?
No!

Said I like to swim, no I can't touch the ground anymore, no no.
But I go around drinking whiskey all through your town.
Don't really know every word if you lie to my face, Lord no.
But lend me your money, I might pay you on another day,
In another way, but no, no, not today.

You give it to me,
and I'ma swim hard.
Can you do it?
No!

Said I like to swim, no I can't touch the ground anymore, no no.
But I go around drinking whiskey all through your town.
Don't really know every word if you lie to my face, Lord no.
But lend me your money, I might pay you on another day,
In another way, but no, no, not today.

You give it to me,
and I'ma swim hard.
Can you do it?
No!
